anywhere on the globe. and then helicopter ben bernanke is going to capitol hill this week with a new blueprint for tighter money known as "paying interest on excess bank reserves." i don't buy it but we'll debate it. >>> and finally, the obama jobs plan which i call stimulus 2.0, full of gimmicks and high tax-job destroyers. i'll use my best right hook against the left jabs of mark walsh and david goodfriend two of my favorite liberal pals. fasten your seatbelts, everybody. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> good evening. i'm larry kudlow and welcome back where we believe freed market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. let's begin with tonight's money politics message. i'm trying hard to be optimistic about economic recovery in america and for that matter, around the world. in my world, optimism always beats pessimism every time. despite wayward policies from washington i still believe in the cyclical recovery scenario here at home. but the growing debt problem in the u.s., europe and elsewhere is starting to sack confidence in the optimistic growth scenario and i have
? >> a lot of speculation about the ecb and real quickly, i just want to mention that the bernanke hearing for tomorrow has been postponed. the expectation is that that is related to weather issues, of course. we've got a big storm coming our way here on the east coast. in the meantime we're looking at a market that's been up triple digits. up 99 and 100 as i speak and this is primarily because there is hope that, in fact, greece's problems may be somewhat tempered by the european union coming in and doing some kind of rescue, some kind of bailout. i want to bring in bob pisani. we've got a lot to talk about, bob. first, bernanke hearing. >> it's just because of the snow, there's nothing else going on. it's that simple and that makes a lot of sense and that's what traders have been saying and we're waiting for an official reason. >> mr. trichet is on his way back from sydney as we speak a day early and a lot of people are putting their hopes on him coming forward with some kind of plan. >> it's actually moved the markets. remember in '92 with the treat they created the whole euro, and gree
's the equivalent of ben bernanke he hurried back. the moment he booked that ticket the hedge funds figured he was going to solve the crisis and that's when they started rallying. you just need to find out who his trashl ajejt is and book your trade accordingly. if we knew he's on the case, we're less concerned about a collapse in europe and we recognize that he isn't about to cut off the stimulus that's so crucial to getting europe which has the worst economies in the world going in the right world. if the stock market stimulus thing is still with us, then we're not going to slink back into a worldwide slowdown. trichet's travel interruption was so powerful it was able to do something i have not seen happen since the year began, maybe even earlier, and that is the stock market did not go down when the baron chief president obama spoke on tv. way to go, trichet. now, i know about zorba the greek than greek bonds. memo to trichet on his travel plans, make sure they're never on a sunday because the markets aren't open. we love it when the currency is weak. that makes it seem completely backwards
me, i'm chaled. >> and what are you expecting to hear from bernanke on capitol hill tomorrow? you say restraint is needed. why and when? >> well, you know, the reason i think that restraint is needed is because i think that he may be getting a little bit behind the curve. the reason i say that is a lot of the so-called leading indicators of inflation, my work, suggested inflation in 2010 is going to be higher than the consensus expectation. so the consensus expects inflation to be around 2%. i think it could be over 3% in 2010. and i think bernanke needs to start move towards restraint, in other words, start to move towards some of the excess liquidity driving this inflation. so i think sooner as opposed to later. i actually think that if he starts to move towards restraint wibt might lead to an increase in bank lending, which is sorely acting. but nevertheless, i think he needs to move towards restraint sooner than the consensus believes, not later. >> that's what i wanted to ask you about. we're getting comments in from the fed's bill dudley who says small banks are fuelling the pre
. and with dr. bernanke scheduled to speak tomorrow, our sense is that that trade will be relatively quiet here. a high volume area last week was around 1064 even. we'll probably bing bong back and forth on that trade waiting for dr. bernanke or for further developments in europe. >> what's your view, jamie, about today's trade and whether you believe in the bounce we are likely to get, at least at the open? >> well, i think the most encouraging part is that this rally is coming from european financials. you can see all those works up markedly on yesterday's trade. domestically, local ibs have been overwhelmed by this european crisis. unemployment was a great number on friday. it exceeded expectations. earnings continue to be strong. we seem to have been weighed down by euro. if that turn around and those financials continue to hold these gains, it could be very good things domestically. >> jamie, most of the guys you trade with trade according to technical analysis charts and yada yada. let me run this by you. the day before yesterday, which was a monday, right? yeah. did monday look like a sh
